    Fathers  discuss the impact ADHD has had on their lives, the lives of family members, and the influence ADHD has had on the hopes and dreams they hold for their sons. Fathers openly shared parenting strategies they felt were counterproductive to
    fostering personal maturity and responsibility in their sons. They also were very clear about the type of father-son interaction that
    clearly enhanced their sons' self-confidence, feelings of self-worth, and willingness to take appropriate social and emotional
    risks. More in Octezine

     Why your child is hyperactive
    In 1974, Dr. Ben Feingold's book, Why Your Child is Hyperactive, burst onto the
    scene, shaking up the medical andndustrial establishments in the United States, as well as abroad. The effects continue to this day. What looked like a modest little book about a doctor and the children he helped has had a positive effect on the lives of many thousands of people. It has triggered far-reaching changes in what we eat and how health, learning and behavior is perceived. But while the affected industries are well aware of the enormous potential of Dr. Feingold's work, most of the public is not. This is why you may have had to search long and hard to find our association, and it is why you may behaving trouble gaining the cooperation of those around you. This book can help.

    Eat right A reader from St. Louis, Missouri , May 19, 1999A truly extraordinary book deserving the broadest audience
    I have long believed that in matters of health "one size does not fit all," and Dr. D'Adamo finally and
    brilliantly explained why a diet that works for one person might fail for another. This book represents
    a breakthrough insight into diet and, more importantly, all aspects of health. Whether you are
    interested in the science, the anthropology, or the diet concepts, this book is an absolute must read.
